Minors have several options to fulfill the PJHC service learning requirement. Each experience carries 1, 2, or 3 service credits:
• Internships, including summer service internships and internships for academic credit
• Center for Civic Leadership (CCL) service trips (Alternative Spring Break and Group International Service projects) that serve a disadvantaged human community
• Coursework, including SOCI 469/470, SWGS 494/496/497, and SOCI 301
• Student clubs and activities such as the Baylor College of Medicine Patient Discharge Initiative
The Susan McAshan Summer Service Internship offers competitive paid summer service learning experiences to declared minors who will have completed required coursework by the end of the spring semester before their internships. Students may apply for funding before they have completed PJHC 394.
Students may seek funding for international or US-based internships, or apply in both areas.
Students who have already fulfilled or partially completed the minor’s service requirement are highly encouraged to apply. Most if not all successful applicants will have already fulfilled or partially fulfilled the minor’s requirements.
